06:11 EDTUBSUBS says 'responding to inquiries' on dark pools
UBS says it is responding to inquiries concerning the operation of UBSís alternative trading system and its securities order routing and execution practices from various authorities, including the SEC, the New York Attorney General and Finra, who reportedly are pursuing similar investigations industry-wide. These inquiries include an SEC investigation that began in early 2012 concerning features of UBSís ATS, including certain order types and disclosure practices that were discontinued two years ago. UBS is co-operating in these matters. In addition, UBS is among dozens of defendants, including broker dealers, trading exchanges, high-frequency trading firms, and dark pool sponsors, named in putative class actions pending in New York federal court, which have been filed on behalf of purchasers and sellers of equity securities. The lawsuits allege principally that the defendantsí equities order handling practices favored high-frequency trading firms at the expense of other market participants, in violation of the federal securities laws.

08:21 EDTUBSUBS sees DCCP to qualify as additional tier 1 capital
UBS has enhanced certain features of its employee compensation framework in anticipation of increased focus on tier 1 capital instruments. Starting with compensation for 2014, Deferred Contingent Capital Plan, or DCCP, awards will qualify as fully applied additional tier 1 capital under Basel III regulations. This will optimize the capital efficiency of these plans under Basel III. Outstanding DCCP awards granted for the performance years 2012 and 2013 are unaffected by these changes, and continue to qualify as Basel III tier 2 loss-absorbing capital. Reflecting progress in the establishment of its Group holding company, including the successful completion of its share-for-share exchange offer, UBS fully accrued a supplementary capital return of CHF 0.25 per share in the fourth quarter of 2014. The accrual reduced UBS's fully applied Basel III CET1 capital by approximately CHF 1B as of December 31, 2014. Subject to shareholder approval, UBS Group AG intends to pay the supplementary capital return upon successful completion of the squeeze-out procedure. The supplementary capital return is expected to be a distribution of capital contribution reserves. It is separate and in addition to its targeted capital return of at least 50% of net profit attributable to UBS shareholders, UBS said.
